    Futurechairs is gone, I think. IIRC, one of the 2 partners sold the company out from underneath the other. There is a detailed thread here, in the equipment forum, but its seems down right now.

    I think the carbon chair idea went badly. Not durable enough. Many failures reported so the industry seems to have dropped the idea, entirely. Maybe I'm wrong, anyone know different?

    I think the same, that chairs look very nice but a titanium frame is more durable.
    With that frames you have to be very carefully
